Diane Lane shines in the role, but the movie adds nothing new to the genre and the resolution is unsatisfying.

Movie Info

Diane Lane is a wayward wife and Richard Gere is her suspicious husband in Adrian Lyne's Unfaithful. Connie (Lane) leaves her suburban home on an errand, venturing into Manhattan during a wicked windstorm. On a trash-strewn Soho street, she literally runs into Paul Martel (Olivier Martinez), a handsome young Frenchman carrying a huge stack of books. Connie has a bad scrape on her knee, and is unable to get a cab, so Paul invites her up to his apartment. Paul is quietly flirtatious as he gives

A movie about sexuality that really throbs with eroticism.

The movie is called Unfaithful, but it's actually extremely faithful -- to the adultery movie rulebook, anyway.

What's curious about Unfaithful is just how little it pops.

A glossy, depthless melodrama.

After the plot's big turning point, the movie loses its focus and can't decide whether it wants to be a melodrama or a crime thriller.

Works precisely because it is so upsetting, unusually so for a studio film, and so empathetic for Connie at the hands of her attractive manipulator. [Blu-ray]

Unfaithful is not so much about the conventions of a typical bored housewife falls for exotic foreigner with disastrous results story, but in fact plumbs the depths of what really constitutes intimacy, and how complacency, rather than the melodramatic ups

[Diane Lane] is more than enough reason to see Unfaithful.

The outstanding performances help smooth over the plot devices.

Gere is convincing in a role that he most likely would have not taken even five years ago.

Devolves...from bland diversion into some truly unsettling sexual politics, and tumbles from that already low plateau into an ersatz In the Bedroom.

'Lo que vale el precio es la estupenda actuación de Diane Lane, quien encarna a la perfección el prototipo de mujer moderna con una sólida interpretación'

We are supposed to like all the characters, and yet in some way, we can't like any of them.

Would play better as a study of the human predisposition toward infidelity were its characters not so illogically single-minded and its atmosphere not so cheap-romance-novel trashy.

Diane Lane is sexy as hell in this somewhat misguided tale of marital infidelity.

Diane Lane is the best part of an otherwise unimpressive movie.

Not much to complain about here. Except that Hollywood doesn't come up more often with surprises this pleasant.

No, you are not more surprised than I am at my rating. Diane Lane delivers Oscar worthy stuff in a tightly made film.

December 7, 2002 Full Review

As a dramatic, erotic, romantic, existential (or not) thriller, Unfaithful almost but not quite succeeds.

Exceptionally well acted by Diane Lane and Richard Gere.

Infidelity drama is nicely shot, well-edited ... and features a standout performance by Diane Lane.

Annoys with predictability for the first two-thirds, and unintentionally amuses with silliness for the last 30 minutes.

[Lane] cooly hijacks the movie.

Quiet, adult and just about more stately than any contemporary movie this year... a true study, a film with a questioning heart and mind that isn't afraid to admit it doesn't have all the answers.

Audience Reviews for Unfaithful

Somewhere between soft core porn and an Oscar nominated drama.

Super Reviewer

Really good. A bored housewife has an affair with a French man that she meets during a storm. The first half of this is about the sneaking around, the second half takes a turn I didn't expect and really gets quite dark. I did not expect this to be as good as it was.
